Pirie Estelle 2007

Member Review by WineGeekJen:

The nose of the wine gives off a muted version of the usually heady Gewurztraminer floral and the Riesling and Pinot Gris combine to give the wine a mellowed out sour patch kid taste. For me, though, there is a little too much Pinot Gris on the end. I personally am not a fan of Pinot Gris and found that I mostly enjoyed the wine until its Pinot Gris-esqe finish. Overall its a good value, though and a nice wine to serve with spicy food, sushi or breakfast.

Interesting blend. Great Nose with apple blossom and cherry blossom. Taste is crisp and tart, but a candied sour on the back end. A Decent buy at $10.
